AbstractWe discuss structured nonlinear programming problems arising in control applications, and we review software and hardware capabilities that enable the efficient exploitation of such structures. We focus on linear algebra parallelization strategies and discuss how these interact and influence high-level algorithmic design elements required to enforce global convergence and deal with negative curvature in a nonconvex setting.
